“Awakening The Heart” Mindful Nature Connection: Touching the Earth

March 10, 2019

In this weekend, we will explore how bringing mindfulness and nature connection together can quieten the mind, open the heart, and bring us into a sense of interconnectedness with the rest of life. Many of us suffer from the delusion of separateness. Feeling disconnected from ourselves, others, and other-than-human-nature leaves us with a sense of isolation and discouragement. The simple practice of consciously connecting with natural processes or beings through sensory awareness, with an attitude of respect, can bring us back into the open, living system that is the natural world. As this happens, we remember that we are what Thich Nhat Han calls “interbeings,” we realize our interdependence with the rest of life, and we come into a sense of deep belonging and compassion.

These teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
4 Continuing Education credits will be provided for each weekend for psychologists, registered nurses, MFTs and LCSWs.

Schedule: Sunday from 1:30-5:30 PM
